Kinesiology Movement Analysis Paper
You will write an analysis of movement paper for the sport or activity of your
choice. The analysis should be broken down into the different phases necessary for
the particular sport or activity (stance, preparatory (windup), power phase, and
follow-through phase). Someone without knowledge of the sport or skill but
knowledgeable in anatomy, kinesiology, and anatomical terminology should be able
to read your paper and perform each and every movement at every joint from initial
stance through the follow through by following exactly what you write. For each
phase of the sport the student must list all of the muscles primarily involved in
maintaining each position (or preventing movement from that position), causing
each movement, or controlling each movement at EVERY joint. This listing must
include the type of muscle contraction (isometric, eccentric, or concentric) for each
of the muscles primarily involved and the specific movement or position for each
joint. Include an estimation of the joint angle.
